I've created a new collection in the collections folder but when i try to drag a photo from folders into the collection it's not letting me do this. Usually this works fine. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks, david

Are you trying to drag into a Smart Collection?

Hi Bob, No I was trying to drag them into a normal collection. After doing some research I then tried creating a new target collection and adding them that way which worked. After that it seems to resolved itself and I can drag photos to any collection now. Not sure why it wouldn't allow me earlier today though.

If you did not already know-  When you drag photos from Grid to a standard Collection, you must click the mouse cursor on the image area of a thumbnail to start the drag.  If the cursor is placed on the grey border & left mouse button pressed- dragging photos is not possible.
